The caption above says it all...
In the news today speaking of the Botched War, some Congressional Republicans pulled a fast one in the military authorization bill that Bush signed two weeks -- an obscure provision in the bill is terminating the federal oversight agency on Iraq -- the Office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, effective Oct. 1, 2007. It seems the Bush administration would rather NOT have oversight for their Botched War:
Investigations led by a Republican lawyer named Stuart W. Bowen Jr. in Iraq have sent American occupation officials to jail on bribery and conspiracy charges, exposed disastrously poor construction work by well-connected companies like Halliburton and Parsons, and discovered that the military did not properly track hundreds of thousands of weapons it shipped to Iraqi security forces.
It appears the termination of the Office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction was a "last-minute insertion." Why are we not surprised?
